Animated Hero: Florence Nightingale
Florence Nightingale struggles against the expectations of others (her parents included) to bring her compassion to the sick and wounded. A woman of uncompromising conviction, “The Lady of the Lamp” served faithfully as a nurse in the British field hospitals, caring for wounded soldiers. Finally, her efforts and appreciation for human life helped to change the science and practice of nursing as we know it today.
The Animated Heroes series is a wonderful learning tool for children to learn more about history. The animation was done well and the story of Florence Nightingale was told true to life and I learned some new things by watching this film. The film was very educational and is able to keep the attention of all ages. This film would be a wonderful teaching tool for schools to use in the classroom or for home schooling families.
If you are looking for a wholesome educational yet interesting film, I highly recommend this one and the other stories form “The Animated Heroes Classics series”. You will not be disappointed.
